One Piece fans, have you ever wondered how the master chef Sanji in One Piece would fare in a Shokigeki? Well, thanks to the Food Wars staff you get your chance. The creators of the Shonen anime that pits talented chefs against one another in an all-out cooking showdown has made a one-shot in honor of One Piece, called Shokugeki no Sanji. However, the news doesn’t stop there. It seems that due to the overwhelmingly positive review of the one-shot that there will also be an anime adaptation of it as well.
In an interview with the Jump Team and Viz Media, the team spoke on the anime of the one-shot: “The fan reaction to the chapter was strong as well. We did get some comments from fans that this wasn’t the Sanji they imagined, but most fans were happy and wanted to see a continuation. Some people said they like Food Wars! but would like to see at least one chapter of this a year. But that means we’ll never get to take a break. When we saw Oda Sensei at the New Years’ party, he told us he was really happy with it. And that was when he said, “We’re making an anime version of it.” Now the two editors of the series are in a bind since the companies working on the two projects are totally different. [laughs] Now everyone on the editorial side is greatly perplexed, trying to figure out what to do about it. On the other hand, Oda Sensei is just like, “So what? You are going to do it.”
